NEW VIDEO: Jay-Z ft Alicia Keys – Empire State Of Mind

This is easily in the top 3 commercial hip hop tracks of 2009 and has it all. Tho if you listen to any radio station you'll probably realize this has had a HUGE amount of exposure making me start to, well, tire of it. So when I found out the vid had been made I was slightly underwhelmed, especially with a name like Hype Williams in the credits. The whole photo use was over done, Alicia keys looks very uncomfortable attempting to sing dance and play the piano simulatenously and Jay looks a bit like he's carrying out the motions. Still, a great track that will go down as a classic New York themed track.
